Right.. Really want a iMac or Macbook. Or Both. So i'm about to offer £300 + So much stuff (and all of it, not just working out a deal for some of it plus the cash/. I'm putting this all up in for the trade with the cash). What i'm offering is a lot, so don't offer me the lowest spec macbook or imac :P

Pics on 2nd post.

I would sell this all seperate, but i just don't have the time with work and wife 1-2 months off having our kid.

Collection is really gonna be the only option i'm afraid, i would deliver with quite a sizable distance though for the right deal..

So heres all the stuff:

Xbox 360 Elite + 20gb HDD
2 wireless offical 360 pads
2 unoffical wired pads

27 Games:

Gears of war 2
Fable 2
Grand Theft Auto 4
Bioshock (ltd edition box)
Gears of War (ltd edition box)
Halo 3
Dead Rising
Assasins Creed
Halo 2
Project Gotham Racing 3
Call of duty 3
Saints Row
Fight night round 3
Unreal Tournament
Smackdown vs raw 2007
Shadowrun
Lost Planet
Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
Pro Evolution 6
The Darkness
NHL 2K6
Amped 3
Splinter Cell Double Agent
Def Jam Icon
Crackdown
Skate
Test Drive Unlimited

Plus a PC and monitors etc.

Heres the PC kit:

Two monitors. Samsung 226BWs.. One of the best 22" widescreen monitors you can buy, 2ms etc. It's also the best panel version of the range. Both in perfect condition.

PC Specs:

Has offical copy of windows XP on it.

CPU: Q6600 - the energy version that is easy to OC.. Although i've never overclocked it (Not confident with that sort of thing).
RAM: 4gb of DDR2
GFX: Geforce 8600 GTS
Motherboard: Gigabyte one, has LAN on it, sound card inbuilt etc. 965p-S3
PSU: Tagan 530W (Silent Series edition)
HDDs:
500GB Western Digital WD5000AAKS
250GB Western Digital WD2500KS

Extras:
Microsoft wireless keyboard / mouse set etc.
Logitech Quickcam Pro
500gb Western digital mybook.

Cash price for all the stuff: £1000

I will not split anything.

360 comes with 3 offical wireless pads. Not 2. Also a play charge kit.

All located in Burton Upon Trent.

Oh right.. I was under the impression if i changed the terms of the deal it would be valid?

If not tho and i have broken the rule, i do appolgise and understand if this ends up locked. It was locked for bumping it up to much, didn't really read the rules as well as i should have..

Ive got a macbook, it was originally base spec but has been upgraded to 2gb ram and a 120gb 7200rpm HDD. Im near derby. Interested?
#7
Can I just ask you where you got that computer desk from?
#8
loz_the_guru - I would be interested, but as you may understand.. For the stuff i've got up for trade and the £300 on top, it would be incredibley disproportionate value wise (as a macbook only a month old (new ver) was up for £550 delivered here). So what were you thinking? - Any stuff you want etc...

Place called 'Car Shop Pit Stop' in oswestry, shropshire.

It's a mexican pine desk. Sure if you looked them up on yell, gave them a ring they'd ship you one (Since i know they have a website for goods). Also if you live without close distance to oswestry, they'll deliver.

I have a black macbook 2008 edition. 2.2ghz intel core 2 duo / 2gb ram / 160gb hd running 10.5.6?
#10
Mr DSP: Again interested.. But same sort of thing as i said to loz.. What were you thinking..
#11
well the post did say 'deal of a lifetime'.........:evil:

In all seriousness, what would you like to trade for it? Its been well looked after and has all boxes etc, but the case has the usual marks of older white macbooks. Its also got a brand new battery (0 cycles iirc).
#12
I'm interested. I have a 2.4Ghz 4Gb RAM 160Gb HDD Sept 08 White Macbook, still have box and all accessories. It's in the apple store right now this second getting a new LCD and keyboard housing under warranty. However I pick it up on Wednesday.
#13
Lifetime ye, not millennium :)

Honestly, i've no idea. Prefer the xbox 360 elite stuff went over the PC stuff if i was going to take a lower spec'd macbook. But i'm flexible tbh. I've got no idea how to value macbooks 2nd hand unless theyre the 2009 ver.

Make me an offer i guess.

iCodd: When you say sept 2008 ver, does this version have the multi-touch pad? - Also do u have any pics.

Infact to all offers, anyone got any pics they could also add.

Well that's up to you to decide. You have stated an amazing deal which has drawn the attention to your thread. I have a macbook but also have an xbox. I could give you both the macbook and the xbox so you still have an xbox and i'll ake the elite.

I may not need all the games also as i have some and i may leave some of the control pads. I would take the PC as i would need a computer and would have to put up with a windows OS instead.:whistling:

You have to decide what exactly you wanna shift and what is worth it.

You may just wanna wait until someone with a spanky macbook pro or mac pro flies through with bells ringing.
#15
it's not the Aluminum one if thats what you mean, but it does have 2 finger control.

Pics not available at the mo (until I collect it), but I was thinking all the 360 stuff (provided it's unmodded) and 350 cash?
#16
iCodd: Where abouts are you located?

Ye the 360 is unmodded, very against piracy etc.
#17
Sure understand that, but i did put on the thread about lower spec'd imacs and macbooks. But doesn't mean i'm not flexible for those :)

So are you looking at a no cash on top sort of deal?

I'm in Norfolk, but would travel if necessary or meet in no man's land. I'm currently on a family visit to Shropshire.

My Macbook is in Cambridge Apple store at the moment. I pick it up on the way home on Wednesday.

Well what ever happens im left without a mac. So i either need the majority of the toys you are shifting or the computer plus the cash. I wouldn't be able to buy a top spec macbook for £300 so unless you can work out a deal that comes to around £600-£700 that would be what i would ask for.
#20
iCodd: I would prefer some sort of collection or meeting in no mans land.

I am interested, tbh more on the side of £300 tho. Is really max on my budget. Would only stretch the cash budget for a macbook pro.

So providing that was ok... But i'd also like to wait a day or two, see what other offers come in.
#21
I'm happy with at least £300, I'm trying to price up the 360 + games. Considering my Macbook is very high spec I was looking to sell for around £675. I think we can come to some sort of arrangement. The cash was more important, however I do fancy an elite!

I am more than happy to meet and view each other's offerings first.

If you don't want it, I will be looking to sell for cash anyway. The ball is on your baseline :p
#22
That's fair enough matey...

How about.. All the computer equipment i stated, minus one of my screens (I'm presuming the macbook you have has the ability to hook up to one of them?) and minus the WD mybook.

And we work out what sort of deal you wanted with the 360 elite for your 360 (providing it's not modded) etc. ie: I'm pretty happy to be left with 1 or 2 pads. And what games u wanted

I would of course like to mull it over and see what offers i get over next 1-2 days tho like iCodd. If you were to agree.

Yeah i'm very interested in yours tbh due to spec and fact i get to keep my pc.

I guess only problem would be on your side is viewing the 360 in action, but you're more than welcome to come down to burton upon trent and view it on my HDTV. Bit of a trek for ya tho.

I did ask around, valued the whole elite bundle at around £400. Tbh if i'm gonna get rid of the Elite, i may aswell get rid of everything i have for my 360.

So with it getting new stuff under warrenty, does that start the clock again on the macbooks warrenty? Or am i right in guessing it'll run out of warrenty in sept 2009? - Fine is so. Just checking.

I could take your word for it though!

Assuming that you would like to be a Mac use, means you have more credibility anyway :thumbsup:

You offered to the other guy first, so I'll hold back.

I'm going to PM you my email address, as I'm not actually on my own computer, so you can email me direct to my iPhone what's happening.

EDIT: regarding warranty, I think the LCD will reset but the rest will timeout as normal. You can still buy applecare upto the 1 year point if you wanted it extended though.
#25
Well same with Mr DSP really, i'd like to see what other offers come in over next 1-2 days. Just incase someone posts a 24" imac or macbook pro.

Well ye i'll give you all my details (Work, home etc) so you know if you did have any problems with the 360 u could badger me to death.

I'll drop ya an email.
#26
You want to swap your powerful pc and xbox for one new shiny toy?
I can understand you wanting to sell the xbox with a wee kiddie on the way...but surely just sell the xbox and buy a nice sculpture to look at while you're on the pc :p
#27
Since i saw the iPhone 3.0 stuff, i've been chomping to do a bit of iPhone app development. So that's the reason why basically.
banned#28
I'm away from the computer this evening mate and will prob go in the dog house if I sit here on my iPhone any longer checking this site. Keep me in the loop with this as I am very interested.
#29
DSP: depending on what comes up it's most likely I'll go for icodds deal, as it means I can keep my pc, plus the spec is higher. As he wants all 360 kit plus £300.

Unless u were willing to go for same deal as icodd but with less cash due to spec being lower. But also bearing in mind icodd has offered to come to me to collect. Understand if ya don't.
